Friday Night Leftovers (posted twice b/c I'm an idiot, but I got a comment, so I don't want to delete the first one!)

Thank you to Danifred for getting me going on this...I could do it every night!
This is basically all the crap floating around in my head...enjoy!

  • White t-shirts - why can't I find any decent ones? Any suggestions?
  • Leg in crib - Matt has this habit of getting his leg stuck in between his crib slats 3 AM. He uses them to help him move around the crib, but ends up getting stuck...really stuck. Then he cries, wakes us up, wakes Hailey up, and is just a sad little kid. I hope he'll get through this stage pretty quickly.
  • Pandora - love it!!!!
  • MDX - still love it!!! I am so lucky that I love my car as much as I did when we bought it. Yes, it's a little dirtier. Yes, there's a lot more dog hair in the trunk. Yes, there are many more miles on it, but I frigging love my car. I get all sulky when I have to drive Bill's car to tutoring, but I guess it is a good idea for him to have the car seats in case something happens. I miss my heat seaters though!!!
  • Young Moms at the OB/GYN - OMG...I can't believe how many young mothers were at the OB's office the other day. I was a little horrified. They all seemed to know each other too...that was the weird part. Do they even know how lucky they are? They're young enough that their bodies haven't broken yet! Do they even know how screwed they are? It's so freaking hard to do it as an adult...I couldn't imagine doing it as a kid...yikes!
  • I lost a follower - who would do that to me? Did I curse too much? Was I too open with my feelings? What did I do to lose you? Maybe I'm just not that interesting...I'm fine with that...I entertain the shit out of myself! Haha....
  • I don't eat that much to begin with - now I have to do carb restriction? Ick...
  • High school regrets - So, you know how FB is having this throwback week this week? Well, it's bringing me down! I dedicated so much time to my silly boyfriend (yes...we were in love) that I lost all of my friends and have no memories that don't include him...ick. Also, there is this kid that I knew in high school that I sent a friend request to and he hasn't confirmed me yet. So, I was like why not? How could he not remember me? Then I was like, he farted on my head at a party one time. Then I was like, why the hell would I want to be friends with someone who did that to me? Gotta love when FB really makes you look at your priorities!
  • Babies waking up early in the morning - Bill and I get up earlier than the babies for me to get ready and so that Bill can get off to work without being attacked by little ones. It's much harder to leave for work on time when you're getting those pathetic little looks that just scream pick me up! So, lately, the babies have been waking up the minute my alarm goes's like the have an alarm clock in their room. They do go back to sleep (most of the time), but it still stresses me out!
  • How do kids get freckles? Hailey has two did she get them? Aren't freckles caused by the sun? She's barely been in the sun and one of them hasn't ever seen the light of day. She didn't have them when she was born...I gotta admit though...they're adorable!
  • Hand washing...annoying much? hands are getting raw despite using moisturizing soap. I wash them before I cook, after I touch meat, before I serve the meal, after I clean up the kids, before I change their diapers, after I change their diapers, after we come in from being in public (dirty public people), after I use the bathroom, before I go to bed, etc...when will it end? It feels pretty futile to use lotion too when I'm just going to wash it off!
  • An actual conversation - after I returned from tutoring last night (at 9:30), Bill and I sat down and had an actual TV, computer, or phones involved. Amazing...we're pretty stressed out and busy right now. We're trying to hold it together, but things are CRAZY!!!
Okay...I feel better...all that crap out of my head.

oh...I can relate to the stress of kids waking up early. I have to get up around 5:15 to get a shower and get ready for work before getting the kids up and ready to get out the door. If one of them wakes up early...I don't get to eat or we are rushing more than usual or my hair ends up in a pony tail...Adam woke at 5am this AM and played quietly in his crib for a while but then went hysterical...eek!!

We pull up Pandora at work a lot for my students...I cringe tho as we listen to Jonas brothers and Miley Cyrus and the like over and over...

Sarah used to ALWAYS get stuck in her crib slats...drove me crazy! she's always been a bad one/restless/crazy one in her sleep! I lose more sleep thanks to her than the boys put together.

That'a list! I gave up on trying to get up and get ready before my kids for that exact reason - and mine never went back to sleep! I still get my shower in, it is just with the baby in the jumperoo and the toddler and the preschool playing with Lincoln Logs just outside the shower.

I recommend the hand lotion from Aveda - it is pricy, but it works amazingly well, and it actually feels like it is still on my hands after they have been washed for the 5th time in a 15-minute span.

And YEAH for quite time with your husband! That is better than any date that you have to pay for.

I could have written 75% of this post. White shirts - agree, MDX - my Mom has one and I love it. Young Moms - I know, right? Losing a follower - that just cracks me up. I never knew you could de-follow someone? :-) Babies waking early - drives me nuts! Hand washing - Yep! I think I have OCD.

Hey Rebecca, it was prob me you "lost" as a follower -- I deleted all parts of my blog and just keep it up to keep GibsonTwins name to comment. You certainly DID NOT offend me or swear too much or ANYTHING! I just lost my entire list but readded to my blog toolbar on my laptop to read. And yeah WTF about all the 17 yr old preggos that know eachother. We have that epidemic here also...
